“We’re An American _________”


The American design duo behind the brand Shipley & Halmos, Sam Shipley and Jeff Halmos, has recently traveled around the country to Barneys CO-OP locations in search of capturing the eclecticism of their quintessential customer.  The fruits of their labor are represented in a beautiful book of portraits titled “We’re an American _______.”


Stopping in cities ranging from Philly to Santa Monica, they shot a wide range of customer portraits from their pop-up photo booth, and also straight from the street, to gather a visual collection of personalities and personal styles.  “This canvas-bound hardcover book is not about fashion or beauty – it is about capturing the character and individually of our subjects,” said the designers.4.jpg


The book will be available in Barneys retail stores and exclusively online at www.shipley-halmos.com, and retails for $40.
